FAUN Trackway receives Australian order

10th January 2012 - 16:38 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


FAUN Trackway has announced that it has received an order from the Australian Armed Forces for its  new Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Aircraft Landing Mat (ALM). The order, announced 10 January 2012, is worth approximately $1.1 million dollars and is the first sale of the new UAV-specific landing mat.

The lightweight UAV Aircraft Landing Mat is designed to provide a smooth landing, regardless of terrain, for any size or weight of UAV and can be deployed rapidly by hand. To enable the UAV to quickly decelerate when landing, the mats can also be fitted with arrestor gear typically found on aircraft carriers.

According to the company, the UAV mats feature a robust design to help guard against Foreign Object Damage to help protect UAV assets. FAUN is also offering related ancillary equipment, such as lighting systems.
